It Turns Out Hamas May Not Have Kidnapped And Killed The 3 Israeli Teens After All

When the bodies of three Israeli teenagers, kidnapped in the West Bank, were found late last month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not mince words. "Hamas is responsible, and Hamas will pay," he said, initiating a campaign that eventually escalated into the present conflict in the region. But now, Israeli officials admit the kidnappings were ...

Was The Netanyahu Government Behind The Killings Of The Three Israeli Teenagers?

By, Michel Chossudovsky "Justified Vengeance”, The Pretext for Bombing Gaza. The pretext for bombing and shelling Gaza was the death of three Israeli teenagers allegedly killed by Hamas. ‘Operation Protective Edge (OPE)  directed against Gaza in reminiscent of the infamous 2001 Dagan Plan entitled “Operation Justified Vengeance” in which the deaths of innocent Israeli civilians had been envisaged ...

Under the title “Netanyahu orders IDF to prepare for possible strike on Iran during 2014″, Haaretz confirms that a war on Iran is still contemplated and that Israel is actively preparing to launch a first strike, despite talks between the West and Iran concerning Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

Netanyahu Orders Israel Army To Prepare For Possible Military Strike Against Iran In 2014

Back in 2013 it was Syria where the world was gearing for imminent military action after a relentless series of false flag provocations by the United States (intent on securing a Qatar gas pipeline to Europe) which in the last minute was deftly diffused by Vladimir Putin. In 2014, it was the Ukraine’s turn, and ...

Palestinian Authority Accepts A Three Year Transition Period During Peace Negotiations

In one of his major concessions in this round of the peace process initiated in July, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Tuesday he would accept an Israeli military presence in a future sovereign and independent State, for a period of three years. “Whoever proposes a transition period of 10 or 15 years does not really want ...

Netanyahu’s General Assembly Dissembling

Last year he made a fool out of himself. He did so before a world audience. His cartoon bomb went viral. It bombed. He looked more cartoonish than his prop. One cartoonist showed a picture of Daffy Duck's head exploding. An observer referred to Bibi's "Clint Eastwood chair" moment. Another compared his explosive to what Warner Bros.' ...

Israeli Business As Usual

  Hardline extremists run Israel. Netanyahu's the worst. He's lawless. He's unprincipled. He's duplicitous. So are other coalition partner members. They say one thing. They do another. Same old, same old is policy. Netanyahu's incorrigibly hardline. He exceeds the worst of previous Israeli leaders. On August 12, Haaretz said he takes "(o)ne step forward, three steps back." If he "wants ...

Israeli Referendum Measure Blocks Land for Peace

  Netanyahu heads Israel's worst government in history. It's hardline. It's extremist. It's fascist. It spurns Palestinian rights. It deplores peace. It enforces occupation harshness. On August 1,  Haaretz headlined "Bill requiring referendum on ceding land passes first Knesset reading." Doing so lacks legitimacy. Israeli's have no legal authority. Palestinians alone may vote up or down on issues relating ...

Israel Waging Undeclared War on Syria

  Israel reflects the worst of rogue state governance. It's contemptuous of international laws, treaties, conventions, its own statutes, and High Court decisions. It's out-of-control. It's unaccountable. It makes its own rules. It maintains lawless militarized occupation harshness. It force-feeds austerity on its own citizens. It suffocates 1.7 million Gazans. It attacks other countries with impunity. It's waging ...

Netanyahu Falsely Says Iran Plans Another Holocaust

He said it before Iran's June 14 election. He hasn't changed his mind. More on that below. Netanyahu reflects Israeli fascism. He's hardline, unstable, unscrupulous and dangerous. He prioritizes conflict and instability. He deplores peace and diplomacy. Big Lies substitute for truth. Repetition gets people to believe them. Propaganda works that way. Fear-mongering and misinformation manipulate public sentiment. ...

Syria’s Qusair Victory Matters

  Qusair's strategically important. Western-backed death squads controlled it for over a year. On June 5, Syrian forces triumphed. Insurgent fighters were routed. Many were killed. Others were captured. Remaining elements fled. On June 8, Buwayda village was secured. It was the final area-held insurgent position. Syria's in full control. Qusair borders Lebanon. It's in central Homs ...

Israelis Protest Austerity Harshness

  On May 11, thousands of Israelis protested publicly. They did so for social justice. More on that below. In summer 2011, widespread social justice protests erupted. They continued for weeks. Others followed in summer 2012. Several Israelis protested by self-immolation. Moshe Silman's remembered best. He died for justice denied. During a July 14, 2012 protest, he poured ...

More Peace Process Hypocrisy

On April 6, John Kerry began a multi-nation tour. He'll travel to Europe and East Asia. His first stop is Turkey. He'll meet with Netanyahu and Abbas. He wants peace talks restarted. More on that below. Peace process deception is policy. It's always been a charade. It is now. Israel wants it that way. So does ...

The Obama Exodus to the Promised Land (VIDEO)

"I will say that I think Israel enjoys strong bipartisan support in the United States. It's really above and beyond American politics." - Benjamin Netanyahu Barack Obama’s journey to the Holy Land hardly resembles the trek of Moses through the wilderness. Nonetheless, his flee from accountability does remind of that often professed transparency. In this case, ...

Obama in Israel

  His visit bodes ill, not good. He left late Tuesday night. On March 20, he arrived around noon Israeli time. Secretary of State John Kerry came earlier. Scores of officials, aides and security personnel accompanied him and Obama. Around 15,000 Israeli police provide security. So do US secret service and its Israeli counterpart. Trips like this reflect more ...

Obama Heads to Israel

As now scheduled, he'll arrive March 20. He'll remain until March 23. It's his first presidential visit. He made several trips before. He's only the fifth US president to go.
